Black Destination Wedding Bride - 157

Day 157

Wednesday, December 21, 2016

Temperature: High 41° / Low 33°

Apparently, TODAY was the first day of Winter?!?
Sooo...what have we been living through beforehand? I don’t know if I should be scared or tickled by this...I’m leaning towards scared.

What Kind of Day Did I Have & Why?

Nice and smooth. I had no real hiccups and was Miss Productive today! I liked how I planned out my lists yesterday, so I did it today. Apparently, I’m a list maker. I really like crossing things off as my day goes along.

If that's the case, I need a planner, because this random journal isn’t cute enough to represent my days. I need some glitter or sumthin on it!


How Do I Feel? Health/Lupie Status?

No aches or pains, I’ll say about a 1.5 today! I think the semi-warmer weather may have helped.
Whoop whoop! Gotta keep this rolling for Christmas weekend!

Workout Time & Duration?

I had a morning workout today and I swear I confused the hell outta everyone that works here. There was a lot of “you’re here early” going on and I even had the Group Exercise Program lady ask me if everything was okay. I just had to laugh, thank her for her concern, but explain that I just wanted to try something new. It wasn’t even that early - 10:30ish. Geez. It was nice to know that I do have some sort of presence there, it kinda motivated me to want to be there...as if I needed more motivation. Every little bit matters! Oh yeah, back to the workout...Core Day was pretty fun today and I was there for about 1.5 hrs since I did a little extra cardio. I haven’t been on the spin bike in a while and I got a little excited.


Destination Wedding Task Tackled:

Yesterday, I said that my #1 thing to do would be emailing Lea about these napkins, and it really was. I did it before I did anything else. I told her I wasn’t crazy about ALL of the options, but we are on the right track. I also asked if she would be willing to have a Skype call with me. We’ll see how that goes. Hopefully, she accepts! It’d be nice to see her! Unless, she really is a man or something...which I’d be fine with too. A little shocked, but still fine.  

Any Old Destination Wedding Tasks Making a Comeback?

A friend of mine asked me for a couple’s therapy reference (since I told her that we planned on having pre-marital counseling around the 6-month mark)...well, she remembered and we haven’t done it yet...so it is BACK on our to-do list. Che will be off work and home for Christmas break, so we’re going to put together a to-do list of everything we need.
The clock is a-tickin...


Loving Black Love Moment?

Trying my best impression at being Miss Productive, I had my whole day planned out today. As I was checking things off of my list, Che decided that he was going to come home for lunch! I have an exclamation point there because it’s been awhile since he’s done that. It’s cold as hell outside and the horror of walking back and forth through these arctic temperatures has kept my man away from me. [sadface, I know]. I put everything on pause for that time and it was really nice to just get some laughs and quality time in the middle of my day.
I love us...we’re so cute.

What am I happy for?

Lunch dates with my fiance...That is all!

What could I have done better?

I can’t think of anything. I’m pretty proud of myself today...I had 3 square meals and was all sunshine and rainbows today. Yup! That was me!

What am I doing tomorrow?

I have a Holiday dinner with some girlfriends planned for tomorrow night, and I’m excited about it. I’ve been playing around, but I need to get our groceries together before we end up eating some bullshit for Christmas - and that can’t happen. Chritmas and the Steelers deserve more than that!
